Hi! I’m Femme, an illustrator & animator based in Utrecht, NL. 


With my illustrations I try to capture feelings, moments, places. I love visualizing untangible, delicate topics in a playful and empathetic way, using bright colours and a variety of materials. This results in poetic images with a handmade feel. 

In the past, I’ve worked with clients like de Volkskrant, Flow Magazine, de Bijenkorf, het Oranje Fonds, Uitgeverij Gottmer and KRO-NCRV

Take a look at my portfolio ->




These are some of the things I’m good at:







I love working on a wide range of projects, like picture books, editorial illustrations, animations, live drawing sessions, greeting cards and personal commissions.
Are you curious about what I can do for you?
